Coinbase, US-based the crypto exchange recently announced in a blog post that it had completed GBP rollout for all its UK customers. This removes the customers’ dependency on US dollars or Euros to trade in cryptocurrencies. It also eliminates one step from the crypto trading experience, making it simpler and easier. GBP support is live for both Pro and Prime customers.

Coinbase UK Is Set for a New Journey

UK CEO at Coinbase Zeeshan Feroz announced in the blog:

“Domestic GBP payments, in most cases, will take less than 30 minutes to transfer in and out of your account. You’ll not only benefit from increased speed but reduced costs as well. By no longer having to convert funds from British Pound to Euros and vice versa, you’ll avoid exchange rates and additional fees for foreign currency transactions.”

Feroz also said that all UK customers had received the GBP update by now. If somebody is in the UK and hasn’t received the rollover yet, it is most likely because of his location settings. As soon as the Coinbase account country is set to the UK, the changes will reflect in the user’s accounts.
